Well done on making it in to the Top 5! The overall AMV is solid but it always feels like the visuals are lagging behind the pace the song sets, clips that hang around a beat or two longer than they should - the end effect is you have a disconnect between the visuals and the audio. I like the video filter added from 2:00 to 2:09, to match the song's audio effect. Not sure about the font choice for the overlays, and they don't really add anything of substance - "Your birthday" and "I'm Cryin" aren't exactly super critical phrases that relate to the video or song. Also, since it only happens twice they are jarring - it's enough to set a pattern but it isn't running through the video. The song is suitable and works well with the characters you've focused on.
